Hoffa's Fat Pad - Knee Injury Advice
Completed 1st long distance in July this year (Roth, Germany), all went very well however have been suffering from pain in left knee since. Have had an MRI scan, and Sports Doc. confirms that I've a horizontal tear in the Hoffa's Fat Pad located below the knee cap. There is no impingement, and no swelling, otherwise knee is good. Doc advises rest, and I now have a knee support with silicon ring at kneecap to provide massage effect whilst wearing. Question - has anyone experienced same injury? Is there any treatment other than rest? Are there any specific exercises that are recommended to speed and aid recovery? I can now jog without pain, but it is certainly not 100%. Any advice or experience from anyone?
